ECUSA affirming openly gay clergy candidates

August 3, 2009

Speaking of sexuality in the Episcopal Church …. the affirmation of gay clergy has begun, according to this NYT story today (which does not have a byline and does not include a dissenting view).

Only weeks after the Episcopal Church ended a de facto moratorium on promoting gay men and lesbians into the church hierarchy, church leaders in Los Angeles nominated two openly gay priests as assistant bishops on Sunday.

The move came a day after a church search committee in Minnesota announced that it had settled on three candidates, one of them a lesbian, for bishop.
